Joe Bostwick’s regular trip out for breakfast at Hardee’s recently would have been a disaster without quick intervention from his grandsons when the mayor fell asleep at the wheel.
Tripp Bostwick, 11, and Gordon Murray, 9, rolled out of bed early to “go to Hardee’s with Papa,” said Tripp. Starting out from Evans Road in Joe’s 1987 Honda, the three went through Milner on Main Street/Old Highway 41 – and then through a stop sign at the four-lane as Joe’s chin dropped onto his chest, Tripp continued.
Milner Mayor Joe Bostwick (center) lost consciousness recently at the wheel of his car. He was driving grandsons Gordon Murray (left) and Tripp Bostwick to Hardee’s for breakfast. The boys worked the car’s steering and pedals until Joe recovered somewhat, but later he was involved in an accident in Barnesville.
